Carrying on with the preparations for Christmas, I managed to get a few days in London visiting friends, drinking and eating too much and fitting in a little bit of Christmas shopping.
Met my friend Jaz at Liberty's, and spent a lovely day catching up and wandering the beautifully lit streets of London.

Back home and after two more Christmas fairs, Christmas carol concerts, rehearsals for plays, and christmas shopping, I set about decorating the house.
Saturday I took Mabel and some friends to see The REAL Santa in the prehistoric caves Kents Cavern in Torquay, truly magical. It made me a little sad wondering whether this may be the last year of really believing for Mabel. A pizza at Amicis and a sleepover followed!
Falling right in the middle of the preparations is Mabel's birthday. This cheeky little baby has now turned into............
